Natalie Portman will reportedly team up with Johnny Depp’s daughter, Lily Rose, for her next film.
The actress has signed on to play a woman with the ability to communicate with the dead in the drama Planetarium, which takes place in the ’30s and follows Portman’s character and her sister–played by Depp–as they use their talents in Paris. The movie will be helmed by French director Rebecca Zlotowski and features a character heavily inspired by Jewish producer Bernard Natan, who, according to Variety, was “one of the biggest French film industry figures of the ’20s and ’30s, who eventually died in Auschwitz.”
Portman has been a busy lady recently, tackling several projects at once. Aside from Planetarium, she’s also reportedly signed on to play Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in On The Basis Of Sex, a biopic about Ginsburg’s battle for equal rights, and will see her directorial debut later this month at Cannes with A Tale Of Love And Darkness. The film is based on a memoir by Amos Oz, and Portman also stars.
As for Lily Rose, she made her modeling debut earlier this year and has since taken the fashion world by storm. The 15-year old stunned in photos for Oyster, in which she looks much older than she actually is.
“The daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, Lily-Rose Depp, has the face of an angel and a magnetic presence beyond her young years,” the magazine read.
Depp also had a small part in Kevin Smith’s film Tusk, and will star in his next film, Yoga Hosers, with her dad. The film is set for release this summer.
